Nash: Leaving tax rate unchanged ‘prudent’ | Gwinnett Daily Post

Gwinnett Commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash believes leaving the millage rate unchanged is the right decision.

“As an individual who has spent as much time as I have dealing with the finances of this county, I believe that this is the prudent thing for us to do,” she said.

On Tuesday, commissioners voted 4-1 to leave the total county millage rate for properties in unincorporated Gwinnett at 13.75 mills, the same rate as last year.

Saying county officials have worked through the economic downturn “as well as we possibly could,” Nash emphasized the need for additional funding.

“There are some things that we’ve got to address and we can’t keep putting them off,” she said.

District 3 Commissioner Tommy Hunter, who had previously expressed reservations about the millage rate proposal, chose not to elaborate after casting the lone dissenting vote.

“I’m going to let my vote speak for itself,” he said.
